System wide freezing due to SSD seemingly stopping

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

Good evening,

I have been having a bit of a problem for a long while now. There's random times when my C drive SSD goes to 100% (sometimes other dives as well, but always the C drive) and everything else in the task manager is at 0:

 It looks something like this:  image.png.42bdca6de2e922b8b5e546c57960e8a5.png

As a result of this my whole PC just kinda freezes in a weird way, it's annoying. I checked in HWiNFO64 to see what the drive remaining life of my C drive SSD, it is 98%.

Any tips to help me solve this problem?

Additional info:

Mobo: MSI 970A-G46 (MS-7693)

Thanks for taking your time to read.

Edit: I have also noticed this happening more frequently when I have Autodesk Inventor open.

Thats pretty funny, I was going to post about the same thing. How long do your freezes last? A few seconds? I have the exact same problem with a kingston A400 240 gb with firmware up to date.

Most times 1-2 minutes. However, I do have a secondary SSD that's the Kingston A400 120GB. Might be that.

Either faulty SSD or SATA port/cable/controller.

Could be a few things.

 

I have had SATA ports fail on motherboards. It ended up being an Intel chip set issue.

That is the main reason I retired my i7 2600k. First SATA 2 went slowly and when SATA 3 started to go I upgraded.

I have not run AMD boards long enough to have it happen on them.

 

If firmware goes bad on any drive on a system it causes freezes since Windows checks the drive over and over again. 

I have only had it happen on hard drives but I have only bought 4 SSDs and I have bought many, many HDDs.

 

If a CPU is at a true 100% it has no cycles for disk access.

This is normal for rendering with 3D Studio Max(Nvidia Mental Ray). Can't even assess the drive over a network without about a minute delay.

Poorly written software can do this.

Check the Performance Monitor.

I've tried different SATA cables and ports. So I suppose it's my mobo at fault. However, I do have a HDD connected via usb 3.0 that's never had this problem of cutting out. Whereas the two SSDs do.
I don't suppose there's a workaround or a fix. I'm currently saving up for a new gpu.
